Listen to article

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo has described his running mate Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as an honest person.

He said Ghana stands to gain from the former deputy governor of the Bank of Ghana if Ghanaians vote the NPP into power in the 2016 elections.

Speaking on the Starr Chat, Wednesday, Nana Addo noted the two of them have gelled well since 2008 and does not regret choosing the economist as his vice presidential candidate.

'I love Bawumia's intelligence and honesty,' the ex-Foreign Affairs Minister told host Bola Ray.

He added: 'The chemistry between the two of us is good. He will make a big contribution to our country.'

The duo contested against late president John Evans Atta Mills and John Mahama in 2008 but lost. The pair got defeated once again by the National Democratic Congress candidate Mahama in the 2012 polls.

Akufo-Addo will be facing off with Mahama next year in his third attempt to become Ghana's president.
